With his exhibition Constant Rendering, Rafał Żarski invites us on a journey into his vision of the future. There is no more life on Earth in the real sense of the word, only perfect urban scenery and machines living their meta-lives. The machines don’t know where their progenitors came from, but they do know what their task is. They fill the world with visualisations of the future, and their day, without beginning or end, is structured only by individual tasks: rendering, printing and application of elements into an imaginary urban landscape. Rafał Żarski thus presents a seemingly absurd world, the foundations of which he finds in the way we work today and in urban planning. The absence of organic life then reflects, with a certain straightforwardness, the consequences of the global environmental crisis.
Rafał Żarski (*1989) is a visual and multimedia artist. In 2016 he obtained his MA at the Photomedia Studio, the Szczecin Art Academy. He lives and works in Poznan, Poland. In 2018 he took part in the Brno Artists in Residence residency programme.
